This is a 12 hour race consisting of 4 mile loops on easy, undulating trail through Heartwood Forest, just outside St Albans. Cheerful marshals encourage you as you run as many laps as you wish within the time limit. Participants can take part as solos, in pairs, or in teams of up to 8 people. We provide food and drink, and as the light fades pizzas are often brought in for hungry runners. We had a fabulous event last year, with so many comments about the great atmosphere and scenic route, so if you fancy a low-key, friendly, fun event then please do take a look at our website and Facebook page.

The route consists of a 4 mile loop through Heartwood Forest, repeated as many times as you wish during the 12 hour time limit. The trail is mostly non-technical; if not wet then the course can easily be completed in road shoes. A mix of grass, hard-packed trail and a small section of gravel. There are a few undulations along the way to challenge runners plus a few pleasant downhills. The race HQ is a warm scout hut located a 20m off the race route; there is a water station on the route at the start/finish line/relay team changeover area.
